XL Danish Pendant Lamp by Svend Middelboe for Nordisk Solar, White/Orange

About the Item

Rare Danish pendant lamp with 7 metal discs. Manufacturer: Nordisk Solar Design: Sven Middelboe Model Verona (XL) Measures: Diameter: 50 cm / 19.68 inch Height: 32 cm / 12.6 inch This lamp is excellently suited for a larger dining table. It does not blind and creates a wonderful atmosphere with the indirect light from the side. Very typical of the Danish lamp design of the 1960s. Rarely found with orange colored inner area. New textile cable with an internal steel cable for strain relief of the relatively heavy metal shade. The overall impression is very good, despite the signs of use: the upper metal disc has very slight bumps and there are few and small paint scratches.

  • "Auditorie" Pendant Lamp by Svend Middelboe for Nordisk Solar, Denmark, 1960s
    By Nordisk Solar Co., Svend Middelboe
    Located in Utrecht, NL
    The “Auditorie” series contains three lamps differing in size, this pendant is “Auditorie 3”, the largest one with the most shade layers. Known for its long, elegant neck and multilayered shade system, this rare model is among Svend Middelboe’s most coveted designs. This model has several common details with the Verona pendant light; it was designed with functionality in mind, specifically to spread light in the most efficient way. The inner shades diffuse light and there is no glare. The large main shade, dictates the design; the upper umbrella-like shade is connected to the stem that contains the socket. There are three more shades gradually decreasing in size. Like the Verona model, the surface on the outside is brass anodized aluminium, while the inside is lacquered white. From the late 1950s, Nordisk Solar Compagni—or simply “Solar” (as seen in adverts and catalogues from the era)—focused entirely on manufacturing high-quality lighting. They collaborated with the era’s most well-known Danish lighting designers and used their expertise in using plastic for the production of radio sets, to create exceptional lighting fixtures in the late 1950s and 1960s. Svend Middelboe’s pendants were among the best-selling models in the company’s catalogue. Danish lighting manufacturer Nordisk Solar was founded in 1919 by Jacob L. Jørgensen and Herluf Sørensen. Svend MIddelboe joined the company later, and soon became a permanent designer. The company is still well-known today on the vintage markets for its Mid-Century Modern pendants and layered lighting...
